Standard #: 22VAC40-185-410-1 Description: Based on information obtained the facility failed to maintain compliance with this standard as required related to physical punishment. Evidence: The facility self reported an incident that occurred on 03/06/2018 where staff #1 smacked child #1, 9 years old and the child of staff #1, in the mouth prior to him getting on the public school bus that morning. Staff #1 admitted to this action, and child #1 also reported this action to be true. This action was also witnessed by other staff and children in care at the time. Staff #1 was the teacher for the school age class that morning, which included her child-child #1. The child reportedly had a blood blister, and some bleeding of the lip with broken skin as a result of the smack to the mouth. Plan of Correction: Once the facility learned of this incident the staff member was immediately placed on leave pending results of the investigation. During the time on leave, and shortly after the incident, the staff member resigned. All staff obtained a review on appropriate discipline and behavior guidance for all children. Also, reporting of suspected child abuse was reviewed at this same time.
A compliance history is in no way a rating for a facility.
The online compliance history includes only information after July 1, 2003. In addition, the online compliance history includes information regarding adverse actions that may be the subject of a pending appeal. An adverse action is not final until a provider has exhausted or waived all due process rights. For compliance history prior to July 1, 2003, or information regarding the status of pending adverse actions, please contact the Licensing Inspector listed in the facility's information. The Virginia Department of Social Services (VDSS) is not responsible for any errors in or omissions from the compliance history information.
